Now you all know I do like to shop …. a lot 🙊 and my gorgeous friend, Sons has just opened the cutest place called Little Island Store for all your tropical Island requirements. It’s located along Jl Kayu Jati, Seminyak between Mexicola and Sisterfields and just near the ever popular Kody Ko. Be sure to pop in to check it out and follow them on Instagram @littleislandstore and on Facebook 👙👛👌🏼 #seminyak #shopping #boutique

Struggling with all the ‘000’s on the Indonesian Rupiah ? 

I found this image on one of the Bali Facebook pages and it seems really popular with newbies to Bali, when they are getting used to the currency. Perhaps Print it off and laminate it to take out in your wallet or save the image to your phone, to use when shopping up a storm or paying for a taxi when the notes all just seem a little overwhelming.  

 

The Shang ~ China Blue

I love The Shang – China Blue, on Jl Kayu Aya, Seminyak, for all kinds of gifts, clothing and ornaments. This gorgeous little store has the prettiest traditional baskets which for a set of three is only 370 000 rupiah. Some stunning summery outfits and also at Christmas time the cutest tree decorations. Its located just near the awesome Café Zucchini, and I think may have a sister store on Jl Dyana Pura Seminyak. Stock up on the traditional baskets as they are perfect for gift wrapping or even storing all your bits and pieces and bring a beautiful piece of Bali into your home. Just make sure you spray them with bug spray and bang each item the day you leave to get any little bugs or eggs off then you wont have any problems as long as you declare them going through Australian Customs.

A new little clutch, I just HAD to have ….

My name is Melissa and I am a shopaholic, or as I like to think I keep the global economy going. This is my new clutch ( larger than a purse/wallet, enough to carry my phone, mozzie spray, suncream, cash, scooter key, yet small enough to store in my scooter seat as I am paranoid about bag snatches) I now have a quiver of wallets, clutches and tote bags made with this bright embroidered fabric. What I am confused about is if they are actually imported from Thailand to Bali or are they Bali imitations of the Hmong style of embroidery? Does anyone know ? Either way I love them and you can get purses starting from about 80 000 Rup, clutches from 150 000 and large tote bags from around 320 000 in the Bali market stalls.hmong
